Solomon Boyd was born in New York City. He grew up in Brooklyn, where he went to church and learned the ways of the Lord. Later his family moved to Philadelphia. He always had a love for music and singing became his passion. Solomon was encouraged to be a part of a group in Grade School and High School. He soon started receiving awards, including Most Talented. He went on to make a name for himself and started performing on talent shows with his group. They began to gain popularity. They gave performances at Uptown Theatre, Unity Day, Community College of Philadelphia, Second Cousin and McGonigle Hall. They soon caught the eye of Ricky and Ronnie of “New Edition.” This relationship opened many doors for the group. The decision was made to relocate to California where they learned what it took to become and remain in demand. In 1993 the group Brother was established, and they signed their first recording deal with Vincent Herbert(Husband of Tamar Braxton) and Sylvia Rome the President of East/West Records. Their first album in 1994 was released; entitled, Ghetto Love. Solomon has been featured in national magazines like Source, XXL, and Vibe. He has performed on national tours with the likes of female group Brownstone, Brandy, Changing Faces and Notorious B.I.G. In 1997 Solomon signed with CashMoney/Universal Records. During that time the group completed an album and released a single. They went on to do the House of Blues while on the Baller Blocker, Cash Money Rough Rider tour. Also, the group made appearances at the Source Awards and Soul Train. In 2002 Solomon transitioned from R&B to Gospel. Solomon has experienced what many artists only dream of, with years of great success and incredible highs there have also been times of significant loss and disappointing lows. Solomon through his faith has been able to proclaim that God remains faithful.
Unrestricted Praise offers true worship through their music ministry. The group has a long history of ministering the gospel through their music. They have been singing together for 15 years. The group has been very faithful, and because they were walking by faith and remained dedicated to the Lord, the group was formed.Unrestricted Praise is a family group, and although they faced many challenges, they were able to remain dedicated to the call. In life there are many challenges that might break you or make you, and for Unrestricted Praise those challenges have built lasting love, mutual respect, and a spiritual bond, through Christ.
As servants of the Lord, Unrestricted Praise is always willing to serve, and because of their obedience and lining up their will with God’s, many doors have opened for them. When God opens doors for you they are always more then you could ever hope or dream of, and God’s open doors has taken this anointed group to higher heights and deeper depths through worship.
Traveling and lifting the savior on various programs throughout the city of Houston, has been an honor for this family group. Well, I for one am excited about working with Unrestricted Praise, and we at River & Word are so glad to have you as a part of our river family. I know God has even greater doors for you to go through, and I pray that He continues to allow us to be a blessing to you. I pray for much success and super natural increase for your group.
